    if you have a hopper pass does that includ ticks for the rides

    Hi Kathy I,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Well, let me first celebrate because you have theme park tickets to the Walt Disney World® Resort! If you purchased tickets with the Park Hopper® option, those tickets will allow you entry to the parks and attractions. Each attraction has a standard queue, you currently do not need separate tickets for rides. If you want to by-pass the standard queue, you can purchase Genie+ or Individual Lightning Lane Entry

    To help you manage your time in the parks, I will offer a few suggestions. If you have not done so already, download the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Through the mobile app, you can check attraction wait times. I typically start checking a few days before our visit so that I can get a sense of how long we may have to stand in a traditional queue for the attractions we plan to visit. I also check wait times at different points during the day to see if there are better times during the day to experience certain attractions. Also, review the information on Virtual Queues. Although you currently do not have to pay to access a virtual queue, you will need to know when to log on to try to access the queue.

    Also, be sure to check the park hours for the dates of your visit. If a park has a later closing time one night, we make a point to visit on that day so that we get the most time possible. Remember that guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection or other select resort get access to early theme park entry. And, if you are planning to stay at a Disney deluxe or deluxe villa resort, you will get access to Extended Evening Theme Park Hours.

    Kathy I, while your park hopper tickets will get you access to the theme parks and attractions, there are a host of other special experiences that you may want to consider in the Enchanting Extras Collection. We love the tours at Disney's Animal Kingdom, Caring for Giants and Up Close with Rhinos were the perfect length of time for our family and the cost fit our budget. And, of course, if you do the Caring for Giants Tour, I hope you get a look at our newest baby elephant, Corra!

    Magic and memories,
